Salton Sea | Salvation Mtn.

This weekend was all about heading out with a full gas tank, taking some photos and visiting the Salton Sea | Salvation Mtn.

The Salton Sea is located 1 hour and half south west of Palm Springs on highway 111. The sea is 226 ft. below sea level. It’s the largest lake in California with a salinity five times greater than that of the ocean. What’s more unique is that it’s completely man made by an agricultural error back in 1905. Cool short about the region

Salvation Mountain is located in a desolate town of Niland, Ca just south of the Salton Sea rim. It’s a damn bizarre place. I was intrigued by the selfless development Leonard Knight did more than anything. A crazy work of art in the middle of nowhere. (A  cool scene from Into the Wild)  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_G00TJ45zM  Religious or Atheist, I def. recommend the place.

Jen and I called it “Shock and Awe” weekend. Epic in every way. Here’s to more travels with my partner-in-crime.
